Tag: Energy rationing

Kiran Stacey

A group of MPs have suggested that the UK should introduce a system of energy rationing to deal with what they view as impending energy and climate crises.

Under the proposed system, a set number of tradeable energy quotas (TEQs) would be issued and used to purchase energy, whether through fuel or electricity.

The amount of energy being used would essentially be capped, and anyone wishing to use more than their personal allowance would have to pay a market rate for that.
